    New System Feedback with GIGABYTE GIGABYTE GA-X79S-UP5-WIFI Intel X79

    Kens10 Level 1

      Hi guys, this will be my first custom built system,   I am ordering it from Cyberpowerpc.  My needs are moderate as I mainly do part time event videography.   I will mostly use premiere pro, lightroom and basic  after effects. I was hoping to stay around $1500. The specs are:


             Cooler Master Storm Trooper Full Tower  or

      • CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-3820 Quad-Core 3.60 GHz 10MB Intel Smart Cache LGA2011 (All Venom OC Certified)
      • HDD: 2TB (2TBx1) SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 64MB Cache 7200RPM HDD (Single Drive)
      • MEMORY: 16GB (4GBx4) DDR3/1600MHz Quad Channel Memory (Corsair or Major Brand)
      • MOTHERBOARD: * (3-way SLI/CrossFireX Support) GIGABYTE GA-X79S-UP5-WIFI Intel X79 Chipset Quad Channel DDR3 ATX Mainboard w/ Ultra Durable 5, Intel C606 Chipset w/ SAS, Bluetooth 4.0/WiFi Card, 7.1 HD Audio, Dual GbLAN, 4 Gen3 PCIe x16, 1 PCIe x1 & 1 PCI [+110]
      • VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card [+135] (Major Brand Powered by NVIDIA)

            800 Watts - Standard 80 Plus Certified Power Supply - SLI/CrossFireX Ready      (for $90 extra  I can get   1,000 Watts - LEPA G1000-MA 80 Plus Gold Certified)



      There is currently a rebate on the GIGABYTE GA-X79S-UP5-WIFI Intel X79 and a free 64GB ADATA SP900 SATA III 6.0Gb/s SSD with the board. Seems to be a nice board, do you guys recommend I go with it or should I just look at Asus Pro or Sabertooth.  I could use the ssd for the OS  and  Adobe.


      I already have several 7200rpm drives that  I can configuire with the system for premiere.
